Vegetable Soup

Another healthy yet comforting side dish is a homemade vegetable soup.

Sure, it’s much easier to just serve vegetable soup from a can, but you’ll barely get any nutrition from that, not to mention that unpleasant tin-like flavor.

Making vegetable soup from scratch is not difficult at all.

It’s just a matter of chopping your carrots, celery, potatoes, and tomatoes and simmering them together in one pot.

The finished product is a hearty soup loaded with flavor and nutrients.

French Onion Soup

There’s nothing better than a hot bowl of French onion soup.

Japanese Noodle Soup (Ramen)

You need not head to your favorite Japanese restaurant for a steaming bowl of ramen.

With this recipe, you’ll get al dente noodles, tender chicken, earthy mushrooms, briny seaweed, and a soft-boiled egg swimming in a perfectly seasoned broth.

Creamy Sweet Potato Soup – I have always loved sweet potatoes. This soup gives me another way to enjoy this wonderful vegetable. I know you will also fall in love with this recipe.

There is quite nothing like a warm bowl of cream of mushroom. It’s rich, creamy, savory, and earthy. It’s pure bliss. 

It’s also easy to make. You just throw in all the ingredients together, give it a good stir, and voila! It’s heaven in a bowl!

Pumpkin Soup

If your heart yearns for something sweet and creamy, it’s probably telling you to make pumpkin soup. 

And you know what I love about this decadent soup? It doesn’t rely on heavy cream to make it super rich and thick.
